In reality, Governor Phips was only 41 at the time of the Salem Witch Trials. The film depicts him as obviously much older. See more »

Very good historical docu-drama.
14 December 2004 | by skeech51See all my reviews

I was pleased to finally see Hollywood come out with a more realistic portrayal of the events surrounding one of the darkest periods in American history. The acting is excellent and the events are about as close to reality as you will ever get out of our American movie industry, which is usually incapable of portraying such historical facts without garbaging things up with special effects and their two cents worth of fiction thrown in for the purpose of maintaining the interest of those with IQ's that parallel the range of springtime temperatures. I highly recommend this movie to anyone interested in this period of our history.
